It's summer, at least in the northern hemisphere, and what's better on a hot summer day than a lovely bowl of homemade sorbet??? Well, there may be lots of better things, but I really do love homemade sorbet.Design Sponge a few weeks ago and decided to give it a try. This recipe is by Katie Parla and you can find it here. She lives in Rome where she is a food and travel journalist and you can find her blog here.
There are actually 2 recipes included in the bowl that you see, the Strawberry Sorbet and a Strawberry Soup by Amy Cotler.
*I used Chardonnay that I had in the fridge. The recommended wine may be better, but mine was fine.
I did not use an ice cream maker for my sorbet as not everyone has one. It's really quite easy to do. Combine all the ingredients including the wine. Pour into a shallow baking dish and allow to freeze. Scoop out the mixture and place in a food processor and blend until smooth. Put the mixture back in the shallow dish and freeze once again. After frozen, scoop out and process once more in the food processor. Store in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve.
At the bottom of the post for Katie's sorbet, I saw a post for a Strawberry Soup. We have a Scandinavian restaurant near my home that serves a lovely Blueberry Soup for dessert. It's so good. Since I had the strawberries, I thought I would give this a try. You can find the post here.
